our history

A third generation of producers who have passion and commitment to quality coffee cultivation.

In 1958, Jorge Vides, the grandfather of the family, founded Finca La Bolsa; a coffee plantation located in La Libertad, Huehuetenango.

While being a full time doctor, working Monday through Friday and constantly scheduling visits to his patients from various regions of the country, the farm was his real hobby. His passion for health led him to become Director of the National Hospital of Huehuetenango, which to this day, bears his name.

Jorge Vides bought this land, which was then covered in forests, and proceeded to cultivate bourbon and caturra coffee varieties.

His humanitarian sense extended beyond coffee production. In 1980, he founded a school that still runs on the farm, which has since been named after him and authorised by Ministry of Education.

Four years later, Anacafé named him 'Distinguished Coffee Grower' due to his success in production work.

"We are a company with a profound
sense of tradition with a knack for innovation, precision and quality."

our beliefs

We believe in business relationships with roasters and importers are based on consistent quality and passion for coffee.

We believe in transparency and traceability trade, where both importers and roasters benefit from value-added products favoring long-term relationships.

We believe that this heritage can be passed down to new generations.

We believe in sustainable development of people and communities as the only way to improve living standards through properly remunerated work, with quality and consistency, achieved thanks to coffee opportunity and passion.

our coffee

"Floral aroma, citrus acidity and round mouthfeel.  Well balanced with dark chocolate and berry notes.  Sweet and spicy aftertaste."
